Updated model is expected to feature a biturbo 3.0-liter flat-six engine.
Recently spotted undergoing testing near the Nürburgring, the updated model has a sportier front bumper and slender LED daytime driving lights. This particular prototype has also been equipped with center-locking wheels, a blacked out targa bar, and a ventilated rear bumper. We can also see a dual exhaust system and a high-performance braking system with yellow calipers.
Spy photographers couldn't get close enough to snap interior photos but drivers can expect to find a new steering wheel and an upgraded Porsche Communication Management system.
Bigger changes are expected in the engine compartment as the naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine is slated to be replaced by a new biturbo 3.0-liter flat-six. There's no word on performance specifications but the engine is expected to be more powerful the current mill that develops 430 horsepower and 324 pound-feet of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 186 mph.
Speaking of performance, the 911 Targa GTS is slated to come with an assortment of performance-minded features including a standard Sport Chrono package and a Porsche active suspension management system.
